Using a Virtual Assistant - What Could YOU Delegate?

At some point, we all realize we can't do everything ourselves. When that happens, it's time to start thinking about hiring the services of a Virtual Assistant. My life has been so much easier since I started working with my VA. She does all the techie things I can't do, keeps me on track, motivates me when I get discouraged. If you're wondering how outsourcing could help you, here are some of the tasks that can be delegated to a VA:

* Responding to customer e-mails and phone calls
* Scheduling business and personal appointments and interviews
* Bookkeeping: invoicing clients, receiving and paying bills, reconciling bank statements,  tracking expenses     and tax records, working with your accountant
* Internet research and fact checking
* Planning travel for speaking engagements and seminars
* Maintaining newsletter and customer mailing lists
* Managing website and newsletter ad sales
* Handling registrations for teleclasses and workshops
* Maintaining web site (copy edits, additions, responding to comments)
* Creating sales reports
* Shipping customer orders and shipping products for speakers
* Submitting articles to other publishers and article sites
* Placing ads in publications and at Web sites
* Formatting e-books, creating PDF files, and sending out for printing
* Designing PowerPoint presentations
* Creating backlinks

 So what have I missed? If you have a VA, how does she/he help you out?
